The sensual rythm of the French band Her mixes soul and pop music to claim their love for women

Lead singers of Her, Victor Solf and Simon Carpentier met at the time of their first band, back in high school. Both singers and producers, the two boys quickly proved to be complementary and released their first vinyl Her Tape #1, less than a year ago. Interviews in major music magazines, blog posts all around the world, broadcastings on BBC and KEXP Seattle, Her is everywhere. On stage, they are performing at the festival TransMusicales but also in New-York, Paris, Berlin or London.

They seek to represent all the women who inspired them, but also the incarnation of a duality : “We’re trying to achieve 1+1=3, that third person being Her”. Victor was born in Germany spent his childhood in Kraftwerk and Can, and Simon his high school years in exile in the United States from where he imprinted the roots of music of Black culture. These various influences shape their songs, immersed into the tormented world current affairs in which they find their sources for lyrics. Citing the combination of Frank Ocean, Shuggie Otis, Child of Lov and Aaron Neville as a musical references, Her have succinctly delivered their unique take on modern charm, romance and the female race.
